LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- WiFi Wireless Inc. Network and Telecommunication forerunner (PINKSHEETS: WFWL) Board of Advisors has voted unanimously to approve Ericsson, Inc. Broadband and Media Accounts Division as the vendor to install and manage the WiFi My City network infrastructure program.
A company Spokesperson of WiFi Wireless Inc. announced today that after months of negotiations with several Tier 1 wireless equipment vendors we have chosen Ericsson, Inc. to participate in the proof of concept city, which will be headed up by WFWL's CTO Ted Abrams.
Ericsson, Inc. founded in 1876, with current assets over $275 Billion is considered one the premier leaders in Mobile, Fixed Broadband and Wireless Networks, Consultancy, Managed Network Services and Multimedia technology. Furthermore Ericsson has approximately 33,000 granted patents and is considered one of the largest patent asset holders in this industry.
Additionally in the same time period we have obtained the necessary permit forms from So Cal Edison for antenna pole placement in places where needed.
After six months of acquiring the resources for this project the WiFi team of experts are now evaluating which cities will be best suited to launch this Sea Change model.
It has become more apparent that WiFi Wireless's vision was on target and the communication analysts have caught on to the fact that cities have to be part of their own wireless communication infrastructure.
Susan Crawford, broadband policy expert and co-director of the Berkman Center at Harvard University, explores this issue in her new book Captive Audience, called by the New York Times "a calm but chilling state-of-play on the information age in the United States." She suggests that we should think of high speed internet access in the same way that we think of other public utilities like electricity and running water -- and that local government at the city and state level needs to take action to optimize information infrastructure for the public good.
It is imperative that municipalities take advantage of the WiFi Wireless, Inc. (OTC: WFWL) WiFi My City program while they still have a choice.
